Level Four Launches XFS-Based Product Suite

Tuesday 20 April 2004 10:06 CET | News

Level Four Software has added an XFS extension to its core product, ATM Channel Development Suite, in response to industry adoption of open standards ATM architectures.

The enhanced desktop ATM testing and management toolset is designed to accommodate the introduction of the XFS interface standard and the anticipated move to the IFX messaging standard. The XFS extension supports in-house developed applications and proprietary messaging protocols, and continues to support existing protocols still prevalent in the marketplace. XFS1 is an open architecture interface, a layer that separates the software and hardware of an ATM. Level Fours XFS extension to the ATM Channel Development Suite enables ATM testing with any XFS-based run-time software application, whether it is packaged or developed in-house, regardless of the hardware it runs on. Complete end-to-end testing is initiated from the desktop through the XFS application program interface to test the live software, using simulated hardware and peripherals. All the benefits of having a virtual ATM for developing and testing ATM applications are now available with the latest generation of ATM software architectures from leading ATM vendors and independent software providers. The XFS extension also accommodates IFX Version 1.52, the emerging messaging protocol for communication with host systems. Level Four is an active member of the IFX Forum, a non-profit standards-developing organization promoting the benefits of the use of one common messaging language for internal and external communication for financial institutions.
